Abstract

The subject of the invention is the use of an IR (infrared) sensor to measure the temperature of the clothes during the drying process and, using a closed loop feedback system, maintain the temperature of the clothes below the maximum value by controlling the temperature of the air or airflow of the air from the heating coil, thus minimizing the drying time.
